“Love this hotel and we go as often as we can!”
Reviewed August 7, 2011

This is a wonderful family run hotel. It is so peaceful and relaxing and the family are so friendly and welcoming you cant ask for more.
The hotel is spotlessly clean with gorgeous tiling and very well appointed rooms.
For a weekend away or vacation it is perfect as it is very reasonably priced, the pool is fantastic and the beach just a few mins away. Excellent restaurants in the area.
One of our secret destinations.

Room Tip: We usually request a room near the swimming pool

I stayed at the Semiramis (which is in the part of Ischia called "Citara") for a week at the height of Italian holiday season, in August. I was apprehensive, as that time of year is notoriously crowded and chaotic in many resort areas, and we really wanted some peace and quiet.
We needn't have worried - it was quiet and peaceful, and a very pleasant and relaxing experience overall.
Some key positive points:
- we stayed in the more expensive "sea view" rooms: I'd recommend these as they're particularly quiet
- the hotel is built from local stone, not thin curtain walls, resulting in very quiet rooms and little noise from neighbours
- breakfast is exceptionally good with a wide range of food; the owners are Italian and German, so both cultures are well-represented at breakfast
- the (private) beaches opposite (about 300m walk) had space for us, even in mid-August, at €20-25/day
- there's a very large thermal pool at the hotel if you get bored with the beach
- the rooms are very well maintained; beautiful majolica-style tiling everywhere, and very good quality furniture. Bathrooms are particularly good and clean, beds comfortable and not squeaky!

A few minor niggles
- air-conditioning is a daily extra charge of €10, even for the more expensive sea-view rooms. However, there is a ceiling fan in every room, and it worked well enough that we didn't need the air-con
- similarly, fridges cost €5/day
- the hotel is only bed and breakfast, but priced similarly to other half-board hotels at the same standard; however this hotel is one of the very best in its band (3 stars). You pay your money and take your choice!

A couple of hints and tips
- the "Gabbiano" restaurant is slightly more expensive that the partner restaurant (Sirena del Mare), but offers a 10% discount for Semiramis guests, and is in a different class to Sirena del Mare: much, much better than it!
- if possible, take a bus from Ischia Porto (where you'll arrive by hydrofoil or ferry) to Citara, as taxis are very expensive, and many drivers, sadly (although not all: some are honest), exploit tourists as much as they can
- you can buy bus tickets in advance at the bars near the port, and in Citara. Buy yourself at least 2 for everyone in the party, so you have a return trip to somewhere in advance!

All in all, although we ended up paying more than we would have for a full/half-board 3 star hotel, we thought this was very good, and will go back when possible. Highly recommended.

My husband and I, our three children and nanny spent several days here and had a wonderful experience. A family owns the hotel and they were so sincere and helpful and made our visit to Ischia exquisite! From the extremely clean hotel rooms to the pools to the breakfast, let's just say - splendid and highly recommended!
Also, you can find restaurants across the street and on the beach nearby. There is a bus stop nearby that will take you all over the island as well!

My husband and I stayed here for a week and loved it. The hotel is very charming. The tilework and rooms were clean. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly, the airport lost a luggage and they helped get it back to us. The location was very convenient for getting around to the rest of the island. There is a bus right at the entrance. Forio, is just minutes away for an evening out, but there were also great restaurants in our area. The beach is just across the road. The breakfast was good. It was a great value for the price of the room, we even had an ocean view. The pool is nice and has also lots of seating around for sun or shade.
